DescriptionRabbit Valley is spread out over approximately 24 square miles of high desert terrain, with vegetation consisting of pinyon-juniper and sagebrush that is scattered amongst unique sandstone formations and overhangs. There are many scenic overlooks of the Colorado River, but no vehicle access to the river. Rabbit Valley is best enjoyed in the spring and fall, summer day time temperatures can reach over 100 degrees, with shade being scarce.
To ensure protection of highly erosive soils and scenic resources in Rabbit Valley, OHV use (4X4 vehicles, ATVs, motorcycles and mountain bikes) is limited to designated trails. Such trails are identified with a white arrow on brown carsonite post. Marked single-track routes are open to mechanized and motorized vehicles less than 40" in width. Four-wheel drive and all-terrain vehicles are permitted on designated two track routes. Mechanized/ motorized travel is not permitted on unmarked trails.
